Those who work in the mail and parcel delivery fields must contend with all manner of weather conditions, traffic congestion and a wide variety of personalities. Unfortunately, they also have another obstacle that can cause them to suffer serious physical and psychological injuries: dog bites. In an effort to protect U.S. mail carriers in one city from suffering these types of attacks, mail delivery to one Kentucky street has been temporarily halted.
The old motto of nothing stopping the mail is true to the point of carriers often suffering injuries in the course of a normal day. While inclement weather cannot be remedied, there are steps Kentucky residents can take to ensure that postal service workers do not run the risk of suffering a serious injury while on their properties. One step is securing pets inside the home to prevent serious dog bites from even docile companions.
